Both are so derivative it bores me to death! Where are the bands that are truly unique, bands that will stand the test of time? Every act that has gone down in history has been absolutely of it's time, not a copy of a previous era or style. Stop doing karaoke and find your own voice. Rock music has never been so uninspiring...!</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

i have no opinion on either band having not seen them, but if you wanna see the real deal, a band that is "NOT" doing a musical style for conveniance or fashion....."ELECTRIC MARY" this wed the 18th at the TOTE...............................AND IF YOU DONT LIKE IT FEEL FREE TO SCORN</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Well, like it or not whatever Jet are doing it certainly works as the sales are huge and the royalties will be coming in for years to come. This is fact and is how a commercial act is measured. Sure it's recycled music but it's feeding the machine that is creating it.

Like I said, like it or not it's certainly in demand.

I have'nt had the chance to catch Streetkid Vandal yet but they're certainly on my to do list.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Unfortunately for Streetkid Vandal, the boys -and girl, take too many drugs, as quoted in one of their songs. We were fortunate enough to play before them at the Espy a few weeks back, loved em'. I agree the 70's rock thing is getting a bit long on the tooth, but Streetkid Vandal make it so cool to be rock. Jet ventured WAY too far into The Beatles and Rolling Stones, dont touch the them!! EVER!! If you want to take small inspiations, go for it. Don't copy massive chunks of melodies, times, fills, and riffs from the titans. Music lovers around the world will frown upon thee. The rest of the world loves it, because they cant quite work out where they've heard all these cool things before.... BUT THEY LIKE IT! The reason they like it is because they've heard it on Mum and Dad's "only play when smashed" collection.
Don't get me wrong, im a massive fan of all those bands Jet are covering. But they did it first.
So with that, Streetkid Vandal provide enough energy, power, and just the right amount of fucked'up'ness to get them well over the line, over a band who's claim to fame, is basically revamped pop songs from a bygone era.
My two cents--</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Lots of bands may appear similar and shit (look at Ghost Devotion compared to Muse as an example), but i think Streetkid have that X-Factor about them. I think that chick bassist really throws 'common rock law' to the mud. Good to see a chick strutting her stuff in the Melbourne music scene predominantly dominated by males. Oh... and the drugs fit the image :) As they say, it's about the *sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll* haha</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

lady08 27 Sep 2004 15:21

jet pale in comparison to streetkid vandal. streetkid's music IS music, jet are wannabe rockstars of which i would consider their music to be more commerial pop- (in my opinion) i believe them to be more concerned with keeping up an image, with being so- called 'hardcore' (when they're not)and need to focus their attention more on their music.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>


RockerBoy 27 Sep 2004 19:18

I actually consider SKV's music to be alot more dirtier\four to the floor rock than Jet. Lady08, did you see them at the Duke on Friday?</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>


NeilWedd 27 Sep 2004 20:01

Having known jet i know that the music they make is the music they love. The lyrics are more important than the music. The lyrics express their sense of being outsiders. Its funny I suppose as now they are insiders.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Streetkid were good so were the Hybernators the band that opened night. I think they will get signed very soon.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

What are your intentions for this rock against rock?

does anyone remember about 10 years ago when a little band made it BIG with thier debut album that reeked of rehashed rock form the 70's. infact the writter from that band got sued overa few of them, but the album is considered one of the best in brit pop ever. i'm talking about oasis. thier debut was all about just writing songs they liked and not trying to impress anyone. i bet if you dig into your earliest songs they sound like pale immitations of your favourite band. Noel gallager said that you can only write songs out of your own record collection. if you're so worried that a few hooks and riffs are lifted from other songs i guarantee their next will show non of this. in fact thier 2nd album will likely be one of the best original rock sounds produced.

streetkid vandal are good i'll admit but once i'm past the too drugged up care immage i'm left with just a ringing in my ears and wondering whether any of thier songs were different from one another. but again like any band their songwriting will improve and if thier live antics remain intact they will be a platinum monster just like jet.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
